When is the right time to outsource video editing?
Just when is the right time to outsource your video editing?
When you first start out with your YouTube channel, there’s no denying the fact that you have to do pretty much everything yourself.
You’re the content planner, the producer, you’re recording the videos, you’re repurposing and you’re publishing. But there comes a point when editing your own videos, no matter how much you may or may not love it, and no matter how good you are at it, just doesn’t make sense anymore, and here is why.
Let’s face it, video editing is time-consuming.
Getting it just right can mean hours sat in front of a screen, and just think, what else could you be doing in those few hours a week?
You could be making sales calls, writing proposals, planning extra videos, using this extra time to double up the frequency on your YouTube channel, making the videos you create even better, social networking to increase your visibility, or maybe finally getting around to creating that online course that you’ve been meaning to do for years.
The list goes on.
Now, one of the biggest objections that I come across to people outsourcing their video editing is this, “I can’t afford it.”
But I would argue that the time comes when you can’t afford not to outsource it.
If editing is taking you away from business development, all of the different things that I’ve just listed, then the time to outsource is NOW.
It can feel like a really scary plunge, but here’s the thing, outsourcing is an investment not an expense.
Providing that you commit the time that you get back to business development and creating more and better content, it’ll soon pay for itself.
You need to focus on the things that only you can do. You’re the one that needs to be on camera. You’re the one that needs to be making those sales calls, doing the coaching calls, and continuing to build that personal brand that you’ve already created. You need to be out there, not behind the scenes.
The fact is that inaction and trying to do everything yourself is by far the fastest way to make your business plateau, and that’s the opposite of what we want. We want your business to explode!
